When you updated to the extended version I wonder if it is possible that the update installed the older version of Bridge that shipped on the installation disks. I would check your Bridge version and see if you need to update. If that doesn't work then hopefully someone else will have the right answer.
First do what Jim said.
Then, in Bridge's Preference settings/Thumnails/
Check the box that says "Prefer Adobe Camera Raw for Tiffs & JPEGs".
And in Camera Raw's prefs.,
Check both boxes to "Always Open Tiffs & JPEGs in Camera Raw".
Just a small but important correction:
>the bridge function of opening tiff files as raw
Not really. That merely allows you to open a TIFF or JPEG in ACR, Adobe Camera Raw, but it does not magically turn your TIFF or JPEG image into a RAW file. Thus, you are not "opening tiff files as raw", you are simply opening TIFF files in ACR. That's all. You have nowhere the latitude of adjusting a TIFF in ACR that you have with RAW files.
still no Joy
may try to re-install the whole programe
Ok so making vague progress here
It seems when I hit on jpegs in bridge they open in raw preview palatte
but cant seem to open Tiff Filesin this way (Which is what I need to do )
Read post #2 again.
I have the same problem, can't open jpg or tif with camera raw, when I right click I can open with CS3 (no raw option) but right click on a cr2 pic and its an option, I checked the prefer box but still no go and I just updated.
What else can I try? anybody know the answer?
I figured out how to do it, you need to purge the cache setting, now when you right click on jpg the open with camera raw comes up, guess I didn't read the fine print on the screen!
great but where does one clear the cache ?
can you now open tiffs as raw
Tools > Cache > Purge Cache
There can be a problem opening Tiffs in ACR 4.1 which were created through Scanner Software (both SilverFast Ai and NikonScan).
It must be something to do with the way those applications write Tiffs but I don't know what.
Tools > Cache > Purge Cache frequently fixes them but not always. In the latter case i find that i have to open the scanned Tiffs in Photoshop; make some tiny change; and then Save As to a new name Tiff.

Another thumbs up for VueScan. B)
Make that a thumbs down if you are scanning negs with an Epson V750 Pro :)
Or the Epson 3200.
I can't see what the fuss is about. The basic professional software with the Epson does basically what all is needed for an excellent scan. You get to make the decisions instead of software writers telling you what the various emulsions should look like. Silverfast is particularly guilty of that. If you believe them, no wonder you have problems!
It's the easiest thing ever to build a profile for your neg material, store it and use it.
The histogram is your friend.
